see all requests

a. Why do you believe you are qualified to be promoted to this position?
as of today, february 4, 2018, i have been an administrator on this wiki for two full years. in my time here, i have made over 17,000 edits, around 9,000 of which were on articles. i have been active for the entirety of my tenure, even having received the award for contributing to this wiki for 365 consecutive days. it is my job as an administrator to ensure that users are following the policy, and i have done so by giving detailed warnings and making sure the user in question understands the section of the policy they broke and how to avoid repeating their mistake. with regards to explanation in general, i am more than willing to explain this wiki's format, navigation, coding, and procedures in full detail to anyone who asks. now that i have performed well as an administrator for two years, and as an editor for even longer, i am ready to take the next step in my career and become a bureaucrat.

b. Have you had experience with this position before?
no. however, i have closely observed the actions of the bureaucrats here and i have a complete understanding of the role.

c. What are your best contributions to Encyclopedia SpongeBobia and why?
i have fixed thousands of articles to be in accordance with the manual of style and grammar guide. consistency is of the utmost importance to me, so if i see that something is inconsistent between articles, i will make any necessary corrections. this includes renaming pages to be in sentence case, which i have done hundreds of times.

d. How do you plan to use your rights if your request is successful?
i plan to use my rights primarily to close successful administrator and assistant requests and promote users accordingly. i will also participate in votes among bureaucrats, most notably user rights reviews, and bring up topics for voting if needed, such as whether a proposal should be closed early.

e. Have you been in a situation in which you needed the user rights for this position at that moment but were unable to act?
yes, many times. only bureaucrats are able to close successful administrator and assistant requests, as they are the only ones able to promote users to these positions. in addition, i have seen promoted users retire and leave the wiki without demoting themselves, and i have had to ask bureaucrats to remove these users' rights.

f. Is there anything else you want to add?
i would like to add that my time on this wiki has helped me immensely. participating in discussions and votes has allowed me to become more proficient at backing up my claims, and editing articles has greatly improved my writing in terms of grammar and syntax. this wiki has truly helped me grow, and in turn, i will help it grow to the best of my ability.

  • Support Weak Support - While many of the opposes in the oppose section are valid (Mainly Red's), I do feel like she is fit for the position, and feel like the way she handles things (Edits, handling trolls, handling misinformation, etc) is effective. I do think that she needs to consider those opposes as seen below and help improve on them (Mainly Red's).  Rocky LobsterPatricklickgif (MCE)

  • Support Support - Very knowledgeable of the policy and has been actively performing administrative duties, participating in discussions, and editing, although I do agree with some of what Dan said. A bit concerned about Red saying Squiddle has been talking about off wiki drama but there aren't any examples so I'm not too worried about that. Also, I don't think it's a big issue that Squiddle sometimes doesn't respond to questions when she's online. It's very easy to click "mark all as read" if you're someone who gets a lot of notifications and miss some important threads on your wall.

  • Comment Comment - By "off-wiki drama" I mean her bringing up the rude comments Jensonk made on YouTube as to why he should remain blocked. Also, I know it's from a long time ago, but she brought up something that happened on a non-ESB Skype on Jon's assistant request.  RedBomb1 (MCE) M001 - The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie (0161) 21:42, February 4, 2018 (UTC) 
  • i said here that his youtube comments did not figure into his block. i was only using them as an example of how he was indeed a cyberbully due to some users denying that claim. if i ever used his behavior on other websites as a reason he should remain blocked, it was not my intention and i do not believe it should be used as such. as for jon's assistant request, i was far from the first or only administrator to bring that up. several others, including bureaucrats, also used that as reasoning for their votes on his request. alex is correct in that i have a lot of notifications and it is easy to miss a thread on my wall. i do plan to pay more attention to my wall in the future. ѕqυιєωαя мεssαgε ωαℓℓcσηтяιвυтισηsε∂ιтcσυηт 03:53, February 5, 2018 (UTC)
  • Support Support - Great user! тυмвlrdeѕхх <мeѕѕage wall>
  • Support Extremely Strong Support - By far the most qualified user for the role out of all users who are not bureaucrats. You've been admin for 2 years and you have definitely done a very good job during your admin tenure. There may be a few bumps here and there but it was mostly self-defence and it was in no way your fault. I look forward to seeing you become one. :) Jack&#039;sAvatarThe Ninja5 Empire (Message Wall) 03:51, February 5, 2018 (UTC)
  • Support Support - I think the most qualified person to run for this position. WolfWink L Auron ⚡ Yeah, that's right baby! Welcome to my locker! ⚡ Ammy

  • Oppose Weak Oppose - I really wanted to support this, but I have a few concerns. One, she seems to overreact to a lot of things and somewhat rants about it in the chat moderator Skype. I’ll take a recent example - Golfpecks stating how he misses Koopsers Joopsers, who was recently globally blocked. Although, in fairness, the user did get blocked for a very serious offense, it was fine for said user to express their honest opinion (by the way, I’m referring to both the blog and another comment made before the blog was even made). She also seems to act like she’s somewhat above other administrators by pretty much pointing out every little thing that they do wrong. Because of this, I personally do not think she is ready for bureaucrat just yet. I will, however, be willing to change my vote if someone can clear this up. Plus, her contributions mainspace wise are great, so although I’m opposing for now, it’s a light oppose about to land on neutral/support.  DanzxvFan8275 (MCUE)DanPic  19:27, February 4, 2018 (UTC) 
  • Oppose Weak Oppose - Per Philly. Plus I would also like to add that sometimes she doesn't reply to important questions on her wall despite being online and has sometimes brought off-wiki drama that doesn't matter here onto the wiki.  RedBomb1 (MCE) M001 - The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie (0161) 19:30, February 4, 2018 (UTC) 
  • Oppose Very Weak Oppose - Per above. Ɔ • W • blɿoWɘʜTxoЯɘƨɘɘʜƆ 01:05, February 6, 2018 (UTC)
